Join Tally’s for a Freshwater Fishing Outing on White Bear Lake

Join us for a fun fishing outing on White Bear Lake! Come by yourself and meet other anglers, or gather your friends for a group outing. The boats hold up to six people per outing (depending on boat size). Spend two hours on the water freshwater fishing or just taking in the beautiful sights.

Your outing is skippered by one of Tally’s Dockside staff. Learn the basics of bobber-style catch and release fishing from our knowledgable staff. Pick up tips and tricks on how to successfully fish White Bear Lake while having fun with fellow anglers.

Fishing equipment, bait, and life jacket are provided if you do not bring your own. If you choose to keep your catch, bring a small cooler with ice (do your filleting at home) or just catch and release (after pictures, of course).

Fishing Boat Rental Options

The deluxe fishing boat is aimed toward parents and kids who have completed grades 5 – 8. This is can be a fun introductory fishing outing. You can also come by yourself, and your skipper can point you toward the best fishing holes on the lake so you can do some serious fishing!

The deluxe pontoon boat is great for larger groups who want to go on a skippered fishing trip together!
